We have added to our license free radio selections with the addition of a Cellular
Modem Interface. The CMI enables the Field POD network to communicate over the Cellular
network now providing true anywhere connectivity. Previous out of range installations
would require the installation of a phone line and/or DSL, and of course, the AC
power to drive the local equipment. Now, simply install a CMI module in a Field
POD anywhere in the POD network and the entire network becomes Cellular enabled.

Field POD Released
We have recently released version 1.20 of our Field POD series controller. This
new version now supports in field program updates as well as support for the new
40 mile range, license free, radios. Each Field POD controller can monitor up to
6 grain silos with accurate usage and delivery information. There is no limit to
the number of Field PODS which can be deployed in a network. Accurate usage and
delivery information is automatically delivered to the corporate office. Forecasting
is also easily accomplished by the touch of a button. All information is displayed
on an easy to read map of your property. Optional Cameras may be attached to Field
PODS for event capturing, such as delivery and usage, obtaining a live snapshot
of the activity. Also, using the pass-through mode, near real-time video monitoring
is possible. No more driving 20 miles just to check the status of a pond or field.
All video information is completely digital and flows seamlessly through the Field
With the growing demand for RFID solutions, we too have been busy. Now, simply outfit
your equipment with RFID tags and readers and tracking becomes almost transparent.
No time consuming alignment or manual processes. Simply pull up, load and go. The
system automatically "sees" the operation and makes the appropriate log
entries, stamping the operation with the driver and/or vehicle information. Now,
you can know who delivered, loaded and dispensed product without any manual intervention.
Want added security? Install the Field POD Access Control and nothing is dispensed
unless a valid RFID tag (or manual override) is available. Of course, your concern
may not be simple theft, but simply employee negligence; loading the wrong product
for the area. In either case, you know the status of your operation at a glance
and have the peace of mind that your product is under control.
Pump Motor Monitoring
We have just released version 1.00 of our Pump Motor Monitoring system which provides
a short-range wireless connection for information and statistic upload to any device
supporting a Bluetooth wireless interface. The IPM module connects into the motor
control housing and monitors motor activity, logging run times and efficiencies.
This accumulated information is then easily uploaded when performing routine rounds.
This information may also be synchronized with a standard PC for more detailed analysis
and historical reporting. IMP version 2.00, expected early this summer, will relay
results through the IOIHAN Field POD Network, bring true real-time information into
the production office. Sleep well at night knowing the status of your business from
anywhere on planet earth.
